Trying to Look on the Bright Side of Life

These are strange times these days; we are living in the pandemic and are trying to stay as safe as we can. We now wear masks on a daily basis, and we only go out to buy food and whatever else we need. The world as we knew it has changed dramatically, and we are all trying to get through it as best we can.

As scary as this is, we could all use a little brightness and laughter in our lives. I don’t know about you, but what cheers me up and also makes me laugh my head off is *Monty Python. If you have never seen a Monty Python movie, please do it. They are hilarious. Oh yes; remember to pee first before you watch; it’s that funny.

*History is turned on its comic head when, in tenth-century England, King Arthur travels the countryside to find knights who will join him at the Round Table in Camelot. Gathering up the men is a tale in itself but after a bit of a party at Camelot, many decide to leave only to be stopped by God, who sends them on a quest: to find the Holy Grail. After a series of individual adventures, the knights are reunited but must face a wizard named Tim the Enchanter, killer rabbits and lessons in the use of holy hand grenades. Their quest comes to an end however when the Police intervene – just what you would expect in a Monty Python movie. 

Monty Python (also collectively known as the Pythons) were a British surreal comedy troupe who created the sketch comedy television show Monty Python’s Flying Circus, which first aired on the BBC in 1969. Forty-five episodes were made over four series.
